This year is the 20th anniversary of Stockholm’s annual Deaf Film Festival. Giving an insight into the life of deaf people, this unique event celebrates an often overlooked minority group in our society and culture.
Run by Stockholm’s Association for Deaf People, the festival takes place at the Zita cinema in central Stockholm. It’s the capital’s oldest currently active cinema, and is fittingly known as the cinema of the people.
The festival focuses on all types of films that are either produced by, with, or about people who are deaf. The films can be anything from shorts to features or documentaries, and come from all over the world. After some of the performances, the audience is invited to discuss the film.
